Fashion’s Night Out 2012 is just over a week away—the event takes place on Thursday, September 6, this year. Last week, we asked a few industry pros to build their FNO look using pieces from our Fashion’s Night Out boutique. This week, they’re sharing highlights from FNOs of the past, as well as tips to make it through the busy night. First up: DJ, fashion plate, and sister to Beyoncé, Solange Knowles.
SHOPBOP: What is your favorite Fashion’s Night Out memory?
SOLANGE KNOWLES: I DJed at Roberto Cavalli two years ago. It was really laid-back and super chill, which is my favorite kind of anything. And I got to keep the outfit— always a plus!
SB: What’s your go-to party outfit?
SK: There’s no such thing! It’s all about your vibe and what you’re feeling. I like to keep things unfussy, but not necessarily effortless-looking. Anything in a great color or print achieves this.
SB: What’s in your Fashion’s Night Out survival kit?
SK: Relatively comfy shoes, my ’82 Nikon camera, a camera bag (Madewell makes a cute one), and, truth be told, a nice glass of champagne.
SB: And finally, what are some must-have songs on your party playlist?
SK: Million Dollar Bill by Whitney Houston, Adorn by Miguel, 110% by Jessie Ware, and Round of Applause by Waka Flocka Flame.
